Personal Trainer Benefits

The Many Benefits of Training with a Personal Trainer Do you want to lose weight but you do not know how to get started? Do you want to learn Muay Thai kickboxing, boxing, martial arts, tennis, and other activities but you are clueless where to begin? In these instances, there is one solution that might work best for you – hiring a personal trainer. For sure, many of you might have already considered this idea in the past. The problem, however, is many people are also easily discouraged when they learn about the associated costs. After all, it is not cheap to have someone to personally train you in any activity, which means having dedicated time and support. At the end of the day, however, you should learn how to look beyond the costs. Think about how it can be beneficial in ways more than one, and for sure, it would no longer matter how much you have to spend. Developing Customized Programs This is perhaps one of the most common reasons on why people resort into personal training. Whether it is for exercise or any other activities, personal trainers will create a program that is specifically tailor-fitted for your needs. Compared to a general workout plan, a customized plan is better because it addresses your individual needs and preferences. You do not need to do what everyone else is doing. If you have injuries, the personal trainer will take note of such and will make sure you will not have to do anything that can make the injury worse. Your specific goals will also be a significant basis...

Sick Policy @ Belmars

We all get sick from time to time. But should you be working out when feeling under the weather? At Belmars, our policy requires sick students to take time off from the gym until their symptoms have abated. Although it can be tempting to not break an exercise routine, pushing your body beyond its limits can actually be counterproductive to your recovery. If you’re uncertain of whether you’re in the best condition to work out, please keep the following guidelines in mind: Consider your symptoms. A simple case of light sniffles is generally harmless—but if you’re feeling congested in your chest and lungs, sneezing and coughing up phlegm, running a temperature, having feverish body aches, feeling nauseous, or showing other symptoms that indicate substantial illness, your body is telling you something. Which brings us to the next point… Listen to your body. If you’re feeling ill, don’t try to “tough it out” and work though your sickness. Your energy levels will be low, and overexerting your body may actually hinder your recovery. For your own benefit, allow your body to regain its health; this way, you can get the most out of your workouts. Don’t be impatient and rush back into an exercise regimen before you’ve recuperated. Although taking time off can be frustrating, remember: your body needs time to heal, and the gym will still be here when you’re ready. Respect your fellow student. Keep in mind that in a gym that uses shared equipment such as pads, weights, and gloves, working out with an illness means the likelihood of transmitting your symptoms to other students at the...
